Default DIY M6 Scout

Complete ground up build of a .410 O/U based on the Springfield Armory M6 Scout. Slightly longer and more stout than the original. Test fired without incident. Still have some finishing touches to complete.

Great job, when you say ground up, are you saying that you fabricated the parts?

That's correct. The only purchased items were the hardware. Pins, screws, springs etc. Everything else was fabricated.

How much did it cost you to build them? Would you ever consider selling one assuming you had proper licenses?

The fab work didn't cost me anything but time. I'm a steel fabricator by trade and have access to all the necessary equipment and material. I would guess that I probably have about $150 total for both guns. That's just for the hardware. I could probably get that cost down some, but I bought most of the hardware from McMaster Carr, which is about the most expensive place to by from.

Both barrels are .410. I didn't have a way to broach a barrel effectively for a .22 caliber. This was my first attempt at a complete build and I didn't want to take a lot of time trying to get a .22 barrel machined. I still had several other details that I needed to work through to make the gun functional.
